Zucchini Cupcake...found it!

These have chocolate chips in them...but I love that combo.

Makes 12 cupcakes

1.5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
.5 tsp. cinnamon
.5 tsp. baking soda
.25 tsp. baking powder
.25 tsp. salt
.75 cup plus 2tbsp. sugar
.5 cup vegetable oil
.5 tsp. pure vanilla extract
.5 lb (or 1 cup) of coarsely grated zucchini
1 (6oz.) package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 with rack in middle
Whisk together flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Beat together sugar, oil, egg and vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer until thick and creamy (2 to 3 mins.)
At low speed, mix in flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips.
Divide batter among lined muffin cups and bake until tops spring back with lightly pressed, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes, then turn out to cool completely.

OMG - I am in love. Hopefully I will have time to give these a whirl soon. Report to follow. Fingers crossed all goes well baking these puppies at nearly 9,000 ft. (yep, I live amongst the clouds).
